Nice surpise with a new beta so soon and cpufrequtils in it, and thanks for the security updates too.

Wait what? Wow! Feeling fresh! Thanks for the update!

Nice, quick turnaround from the last beta. cpufrequtils as a default a prelude to better performance governors controlled by SteamOS?
I wonder steam os is still a thing. Are there major improvements? Tried it several times. Was very buggy.

I haven't ran into very many bugs if you're using it in the intended use case (On an HTPC or similar device being used primarily by a game controller with no desktop use).

Great to know work on SteamOS is ongoing! I have a PC hooked up to the TV in the living room with SteamOS and 4 controllers as the only gaming system, and I must say it becomes a little bit better everytime. Thanks for your work and linux support.

Hope to see great things in the future!
Woohoo! 2018 is starting on burning rubber! Valve is on fire! Awesome! :steamhappy:

Well, Debian 9 Stretch was released 7 months ago. SteamOS 2 is based on a three years old Jessie.

So yes, lots of good stuff this January but I wouldn't call it burning rubber...

Well, build a pc for steam os. Some weeks later installed Win7^^ Used Steam controller. Had issues with sound, graphics output an performance. Was very annoying. Maybe try ne newest version one day.

Ok... I was meaning the pace at which SteamOS is being updated since the beginning of 2018.

Debian Jessie is 3 years old but kernel 4.14 is not. Am I wrong?

Imo, as long as the gpu drivers and kernel are being updated regularly and no compatibility issues are uncovered, I don't see any problems there.
Thanks!

I'm having an issue with the newly released Final Fantasy XII - The Zodiac Age. I can stream it fine via the steam link using my steam controller, but when I try to stream it via this latest steamOS beta it launches, but it doesn't recognise any controller input, except for launching the overlay.

Anyone else seeing this?

I have been losing controller focus (to what, I don't know) on the BPM home page. Since I have a home theater remote, I just use that to re-focus BPM and controller 'control' returns.

Curioser still, streaming to ubuntu on my laptop works absolutely fine.
